The endless nights and sleepless days
I find myself in an etenernal haze
Of water colours and crystal chalks
Across this painted road he walks
Towards me with his arms awide
Against his chest, in safety, I reside
The warmth of his heart near my own
I take comfort in the love we've grown
For each other, for you, in your arms
I know, each time, I am safe from harm
With every waking minute of my life
Every breath, every pain, every strife
In your arms, the night draws near
"Hang in there" You whisper in my ear
Your voice is beautiful. Enchanting.
Each note, each word, undemanding.
"The sky is formed of rouges and pinks
of primrose, and yellow," so you think.
My blinded eyes can no longer sense
The beauty of your solemn pretence
The beating of my heart, it lingers
Around my arms, I feel your fingers
Press tight in my skin and plead
"Hold on. Hold on. It's you, I need."
He contiues, his voice so hurt
His voice is smooth, and in no way curt
"As selfish as it sounds, I -
can not live to see you die."
I feel the contours of his face
Then soon my fingers trace
His lips, I give a gentle kiss
For the corner of his mouth, I miss
"Dream," He cries, "Dream of me
Of angels, and of sky and sea
For in the special place for which you leave
Above is light and dark beneath
Leave me now, when I summon you
and don't look back towards me too
I give you my heart and soul
My body, my mind, so whole"
Blinded eyes stream with greying tears
He chin rests in my hands, so near
I reach, weakened limbs towards his face
One last time, to touch and feel his grace
"I love you." I hear my own quiet voice
He kisses me deep : "I have made my choice."
I fear what he says, and that what he says is true
"I have decided, to embrace the darkness with you."
"No." I find myself crying aloud, the well echoes with the sound
"Too long from death, we've cowed." our backs are cold against the ground
The water engulfs us, swallows us whole, it's sickly charms
Embrace our souls yet I am safe, for I, am in your arms
